Samsung’s Note series dominates the top-end phablet market but larger Android manufacturers are trying to take sales away from the company. LG announces LG Pro2, a phablet packed with the latest tech and top-end hardware.

The LG Pro2 phablet has a huge 5.9in display, yet LG has managed to keep down the size and weight, and keep things stylish.
A thin bezel means even tiny hands can hold and grip the LG with ease, and features such as Mini View aim to improve the ease with which you can use the phablet in one hand. This KitKat device also boasts 4K video recording and Knock Code lock/unlock security.

Photos and video look delightful on the huge display, and we like the adjustable split-screen mode that lets you watch a fi lm while typing a quick email. There’s a 13Mp camera on the rear, and a 2.1Mp webcam at the front – a white border placed onscreen can aid the capture of selfi es with the latter.

Inside is a 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 3GB of RAM. The LG Pro2 phablet  is available with 16- or 32GB of storage, and a microSDXC card reader lets you slot in a further 64GB. A 3200mAh battery is removable. Pricing is yet to be confi rmed.
